• Introduction

    This area has been created to allow CLD practitioners to share views and discuss feedback on the Education Governance: Next Steps  which was published by the Scottish Government in June 2017 following the Governance Review.

    The main driver for this area is the short-term action for the Scottish Government to consult on:

    “Establishing an Education Workforce Council for Scotland which will take on the responsibilities of the GTCS, the Community Learning and Development Standards Council and register other education professionals. The full scope of the functions to be undertaken by this body will be included in our consultation on our Education Bill in autumn 2017.”


    The CLD Standards Council prepared a Position Statement in response to the Next Steps - August '17.
